MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2008
Bottle (345ml). Poured a golden orange with a tight, creamy head which was mostly lasting. Aroma was of sweet malts, honey, orange citrus and light notes of caramel. Flavor was a light grassy hop bitterness with some honey, sweet malts and marmalade. Light to medium bodied with lively carbonation, slight creamy/dry mouthfeel and a decent finish.

Muggus69 (2657) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 8, 2007
Chilled 345ml bottle. Zesty citrus hops on the nose, subtle hint of passionfruit, pineapple and grass, some grainy maltiness. Pours a clean orange-gold body with decent white foam and lace. Moderate carbonation, reasonably full bodied, slight drying on the palate. Decent amount of grassy citrus and passionfruit hop flavour, has a slightly sweet juiciness to it, only a hint of cereal-like malt in the background. Mild but slightly metallic bitter note towards a drying finish. A reasonably well made and balanced pale ale, could definately go a few in an evening.

Thylacine (526) - Tasmania, AUSTRALIA - JUN 25, 2007
A clear orangy gold beer with a creamy, off white head, which soon diminished. Light to medium body and medium carbonation. Aroma of orange and apricots (from the amarillo hops). Rather sweet and fruity with only a very mild bitterness in the finish and a fruity aftertaste. . All up an enjoyable and refreshing beer.

Rizzo (13) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 2, 2007
Speculator light. Amarillo hops dominate but nowhere near as intense or bitter as it’s big brother. Can be a little too cloying for a session thought.

DarkFaerytale (21) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 21, 2007
bottle - beautifull looking beer, clear orange, nice white head that lasted about half way down the glass (schooner) aroma is sweet citrus flavour balances nicely with the bitterness. a great beer to have with friends over a nice chicken salad

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2007
Bottle. Nose is citrus and apricot balanced with sweet toasty cereal malt. Flavour is more cereal malt developing a bitterness throughout. Finish is fresh and thirst quenching at first, but becomes a little bit cloying and sweet as you go on. An ok but unremarkable ale.

ChrisTurner (209) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 15, 2007
Delicious malty aroma. Head dies away almost immediately. Very nice rich coppery colour. Feels nice in the mouth with hoppy flavours with a touch of bitterness. Apparently one of the most popular brews at the brewhouse in Melbourne.

lasonovich (151) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 17, 2006
This is my new favourite of the James Squire selection. Its got a strong orange colour and is quite bitter. Very easy drinking but still with plenty of flavour makes it one of my favourites. It is slightly fruity but I don’t think this detracts from the overall flavour which is strong and smooth.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 23, 2006
On tap at the brewpub. Pours dark gold to light amber with a big bubbled thick foamy ivory head. Faint hop and toasted malt aroma. Great lacing. Nice mild hop palate. Body is medium- definitely not light. A touch better than many Oz beers.

2.4
beerledgend (1196) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 1, 2006
Clear bright orange in colour with big white head, mild malty aroma. english style bitter hop flavur, citrus orange mouth feel. dry finish.
